Thank you so much everyone for posting about our album, reblogging it, sharing, tweeting, and whatever else you did. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much. Hopefully we get out around the US sometime soon.
If you guys liked what you heard from “We’re All Better Than This”, you can now preorder it, along with the “Summer Months” rerelease on vinyl, AND a ton of amazing bundling/discography sales, all at the Count Your Lucky Stars Records webstore:Source: countyourluckystars.bigcartel.com
nice to see joie de vivre have dropped even more of the rad loud/soft dynamics, minimal interwoven guitars and strained vox that made summer months the best emo record in about 15 years in favour of plodding forgettable songs with tiresomely over literal lyrics, bro’d out gang vocals, way too much horn in the mix. such a shame. did they just stop listening to mineral or something?

Quick update: The other weekend we made the epic journey to Richmond, VA for stay sweet fest. It was amazing. We also played Kling Thing on the way home which is pretty much our favorite place to play. We have some merch left over from the journey in our big cartel store so if you’re into that stuff its there.
Our new record is off getting pressed, once we get news of test pressings and such we’ll put up a stream of it somewhere. Couldn’t possibly be more excited.
Europe dates will also be released soon. The chance of us getting back alive? 5%
